The Rockies kick off their final series of the season with everything on the line still. With a one-game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers and three games left, noting is guaranteed yet, though the outlook is very good. A Cardinals loss this afternoon guaranteed that the Rockies will at least get a game 163 regardless of what happens. However, a win tonight would guarantee them a Wild Card berth as well as make the likelihood of them winning the NL West for the firs time in franchise history extremely high.
Colorado native Kyle Freeland will take the mound tonight for his hometown team in front of a sell-out crowd in a story that is too crazy for fiction. As one of the Rockies ace young pitchers, Freeland will be looking to put the cherry on top of what has already been an amazing sophomore season that should place him in the top four of NL Cy Young voting.
The Rockies are 59% favorites in tonight's game according to 538 predictions.
